End users do not interact with specifications and wireframes. Rapid, testable prototypes and early end-user validation enable the teams to focus on the end result. This minimizes the need for internal specifications during the projects.
During the design phases, the focus is not on deliverables like in traditional UX design. The focus is on obtaining feedback as early as possible. This enables quick decisions and validation of utility + usability.
Develop in record time and launch early. After the initial launch, Lean UX can be used as one of the key toolsets to pursue growth hacking. Analytics must be tightly integrated. A/B and multivariant tests can be driven on live installations to probe what makes the users happy.
This is not just for consumer products. Enterprise software should maximize utility and usability by iteration to ensure the solution has great value for the users.
There is no version 1 now and version 2 next year. That was when software was shipped in boxes. There is the version you run this week. And it is a lot better than the one last week.
Lean UX Manifesto
|Early customer validation||over releasing products with unknown end-user value|
|Collaborative design||over designing on an island|
|Solving user problems||over designing the next cool thing|
|Applying only the appropriate tools||over following a rigid plan|
|Nimble design & immediate prototyping||over heavy wireframes and specifications|
Let's prototype everything with code. We start with Angular 5 on day one.
